Shelter dog garners his own attention with food bowl prop

When there are hundreds and hundreds of dogs looking out of their shelter cages towards every potential adopter walking by at the San Bernardino City Animal Shelter, getting noticed takes some ingenuity. And Matty isn’t taking any chances, so with food bowl in mouth and looking about as cute as any dog could look, this shelter favorite has taken to a new “attention getter.”Matty A496601 2

“Please pick me, love me, adopt me; I’m ready to go home. Look I can carry my own dog bowl,” Matty begs with his adorable antics and his doe brown eyes.
